Arthur Arguello, Amazon

  • Summary: Overall the radio is great, but the only thing that was a disappointment was that the radio didn't charge my phone as advertised. I tried multiple USB cords and even tried a few of my friends phone and nothing. The radio is very rugged and I love all the options it has. I would recommend this anyone who is looking to add a multipurpose radio to their bug out bag.

Plastic crank nob will break

Pat Miller, Amazon
15 September 2014
  • Summary: At first glance, pretty awesome. Solar panel charges well, crank felt good when turning. LED light lit well, the clock/radio display is backlit so easy to read in the dark. Radio and speakers worked for what I needed, except it likes to be held; anytime I put it down, the antenna would have trouble keeping a good reception. Could have just been in a bad location out in the woods too. Clip seemed more useful than I thought and clipped onto things well.

  • Summary: This is a nice handy little unit to have on a camping trip or just keep in your car. The battery charges to full fairly quickly with some cranking, but don't expect to be listening for long without recranking. I think maybe I'll get about 10 minutes at full volume. I'd also note that plugging my Galaxy S5 into this and cranking does not even register as a charge on the phone.

  • Summary: So I receive the radio and charge it up. I then test its functionality and the radio seems to work fine but dies quickly. I then let the radio charge for a couple of days using the built-in solar cell. After long charge time I turn the radio on and the thing dies quickly (15mins). I take the battery out and connect it to my volt meter. The battery is dead. I charge it again and nothing. I will have to now purchase a battery for the thing.

  • Summary: Not what I wanted... it seems great, but I was hoping for something that would provide more of a charge for a cell phone and it is really more for radio use. The cell charge is only to provide enough for a quick emergency call.

Great accessory if using a Spot device.

The Zissou, Amazon
2 July 2014
  • Summary: Bought as a last-ditch emergency charger for a cellphone. Takes about 1 hour to charge an iPhone 1%. It takes about 3-4% for your iPhone to make a VERY quick call or send text messages. Which makes it better than nothing, if you MUST use your phone. Great device to pair to a Spot.

  • Summary: Great radio. We recently had bad storms and this helps when your power goes out. The best way to keep track of the weather while in the storm shelter.
